This week we have published one of our ever popular class photos, this one is of Abbey Boys School in Worksop, taken in 1937.

Pictured with the headmaster Mr Wildmoore, is Ernie Clarke with the shield and on his left is Douglas Spacey. Douglas and Ernie were friends for a long time and when Douglas was killed on his motorbike at the age of 19, Ernie actually made him a pot for his grave. This photo was kindly sent in by Mrs Phyllis Pigott, of Princess Anne Road, Worksop.
